Borough aims for completion of several road projects


SPRING LAKE — Borough officials outlined road projects they hope to complete over the next 12 months during the council meeting last Tuesday.

The borough’s main focus will be the completion of Phase III of its Third Avenue project, for which the borough was awarded $255,000 in grant funds from the New Jersey Department of Transportation [NJDOT].

Phase III of the Third Avenue project will repave Third Avenue from Passaic Avenue to the Lake Como border, along with fixing any curbs, driveway aprons or drainage that need to be corrected, making necessary enhancements to striping, crosswalks or signage, and the installing traffic calming devices like the speed platforms.

The borough plans to install two speed platforms that will be located between Lake Como and South Boulevard, equidistant from the driveway to Marucci Park, “about 200 feet north and 215 feet south,” said borough engineer Peter Avakian at the last council meeting.

Other improvements to be addressed as part of Phase III include: drainage issues at the driveway entrance to Marucci Park; tying in or eliminating an empty inlet where a pipe was removed north of Marucci Park; and the paving of Monroe Avenue to Third Avenue, Mr. Avakian said.

The borough also expects to apply microsurfacing to sections of three roads in the borough this fall — Morris Avenue, Pitney Avenue and Prospect Avenue.
